Just a few things to note on Quirks:
- IBM’s Eclipse x86-64 for Windows is hidden. I can understand that the majority of Windows users don’t care about x86 or x86-64, but why keep the download hidden so that there’s no way to find it through links on the website? Now, the x86-64 version works fine and requires Java x86-64. You won’t have trouble finding Java x86-64 for Windows. It’s a drop-down menu under Operating System.(… I doubt the one for Linux works.) If you google search eclipse 3.5 64 bit, you get Eclipse Downloads and Eclipse IDE for 64-bit Windows and 64-bit Java « LingPipe Blog on Jul 21. I’d pick the second choice.
- eclipse Python 3: Python Development with PyDev and Eclipse – Tutorial or Python development with Eclipse and Ant. Again, IBM’s links are outdated.
- Becareful, Don’t Look BACK! If you want to write code that can be used on most installations, you’d better write it in Python 2 and use 2to3 whenever you want it to run on Python 3. Try searching for it. You get junk. And more hard to spell stuff.
